A little Gold….


Here I used the whole front of a Christmas card and added the message. A little layering and its done!


Red & Gold


Here is another Xmas card made from up-cycled cards l received last Xmas. I used a lovely snowflake background paper from Papermania’s Christmas in the Country paper pack which seems to lend itself nicely to the gold trees, border and message.

Seasons Greetings


Some of the cards I received for Xmas were so lovely that I just had to up-cycle them!

Here I used two cards, the first layer is a die cut part of a card (with the post box) and the second is an image that went lovely behind it. And the greeting is included in the image! Wa-hey! The background paper is from Papermania’s Mr Smiths Workshop.

Apologies for it being March and Im still showing Xmas cards, but this year Im determined to get all my cards done early for next Xmas! Ha ha!

Through the Window


I used my Papermania papers on this card, Christmas in the Country, and Mr Smiths Workshop, on all the die cuts.

The holly die is XCut, the ivy is unbranded.

The pink embellishments are also a docraft product. The scene through the window is a recycled Xmas card, and the window frame is from my stash.

Still Christmas in my mind!


Ive made so many Xmas cards that lm still blogging them!

This one was inspired by a grungy card l saw on Pinterest. It doesn’t look like it at all, though…but hopefully it still works.

Tim Holtz inks used to distress the papers, and a lovely wood grain stamp that l bought from Ali Express.

The papers are from Papermania and the deer stamp and die message are also Papermania.
